4 Months Old!

I know I'm a little late, but her four month birthday also coincided with my return to work, so my spare time has been slashed dramatically. We did do a little photo shoot though!
She has changed so much over the last month. She is a lean, mean, rolling machine now! She will roll all over the floor now. So much so her little exercise mat is a little too narrow for her, so she spends more time on a blanket on the floor exploring that way. She is discovering her voice more and more now, and has found an octave that is so loud, it kind of hurts your ears. It drives her daddy BANANAS! He comes running every time she does it thinking something is wrong only to have her just playing away, completely happy. Sometimes I swear I see this proud look on her face when she discovers a new sound she can make.

Emilie also giggles like crazy. It's the best sound in the entire world. I have a couple videos on our camera, I'm going to try and upload them onto YouTube, so it's easier for non readers of this blog to watch them as well.

Emilie is still teething, and has been for the last month or so. She'll be a drool monster for a few days, and a little cranky pants, then it will pass, and then start up again about a week or so later. I keep hoping that those two little teeth under the gums will pop through already, but no such luck as yet. She's really taken to the little teething toys we have, as well as any fingers or knuckles that get within sucking distance of her mouth!

Here are the official stats from her 4 month well baby visit:
Weight: 13.1 lbs putting her at the 50th percentile *
Height 24 inches putting her at approx the 60th percentile *

*According to the growth calculator in my copy of What to Expect the First Year.

I will end with a few pictures from her four month photo shoot. Time is passing a little too quickly!
-Our Little One is four months old!
Oh Momma, that camera is so cool!
